Last night, we were supposed to do our weekly Dexter night with Stephen’s family. Everyone comes over, bringing a food or drink item, and we all potluck it up and watch Dexter since Stephen and I have Showtime. Unfortunately, due to all sorts of different reasons, everyone bailed. Yeah, I was disappointed. The house was clean, laundry done, the baby was in a good mood and super cute in her butterfly long johns. And Stephen and I had dug out our Indian cookbook, planning to make Indian Butter Chicken from scratch.
So, after receiving phone call after text after phone call from folks saying they couldn’t make it, we sighed at each other. Then Liv started to get a little fussy.
Then my back started to hurt.
Stephen went into the kitchen to start cooking anyway since there was no reason we couldn’t have our super awesome Indian dinner to ourselves.
When my back is spasming, there’s really not much I can do other than stay off my feet and try to stay relaxed. A squirming baby who wants to walk around and be carried doesn’t mesh well with this scenario.
Stephen poked his head into the living room, saw the situation, and said, “Show me how to wrap her on my back.”
Yes, he did.
I offered to show him the rucksack but he opted for a cross carry like I do with her on my front. She’s a little too low on his back but she was secure and snuggily. He turned on his iPod, danced with her in the kitchen, and cooked some badass awesome Indian food. It was wonderful to see him wearing her. I hope to see it many, many more times.
So my happy for today?
